There are many ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has lots of practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you can forward the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active if you are communicating with clients or partners. In case you have two similar Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could forward the traffic to the other site so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first site and develop it.
URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our Linux cloud web hosting packages, provides a URL redirection tool that will allow you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather simple - you have to select a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it needs to be forwarded to. You could also redirect a certain subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you are able to forward just the latter. The tool has sophisticated features for more tech-savvy users too, including the possibility to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer require a redirection, you may disable it with a mouse click from the same section of the Control Panel.

However, when you no longer need a particular domain or subdomain to be redirected, you'll be able to delete the redirection without difficulty.
